    Network Marketing - The Reality

    The reality of Network Marketing

    This is what goes through the mind of virtually every person who decides to get involved in Network Marketing, 'Hmm, I can think of 5 or 6 people who might do this too! My sister would be great! My friend loves this kind of thing. I know this other person who could be amazing! Okay, I'll join!'

    In other words, they aren't joining a profession. They're just hoping to get lucky, sign up a few people to cover their own start-up costs, and sit back and wait for the money to roll in. The allure of being paid for someone else's efforts is powerful, but often badly misunderstood.

    They haven't started a real business. They just purchased a glorified lottery ticket. Imagine a lottery ticket with 6 scratch off spots. Those spots represent each of the people the new person thinks will certainly join. They approach those people and try to get them to join. And because of their lack of skill, most of them end up with nothing - just like the lottery ticket. This becomes just another lost opportunity, and since they have acted in unskilled ignorance, they may have damaged some friendships as well.

    So they rip up the ticket, and instead of taking responsibility for not really starting their business, they blame Network Marketing and make sure to tell the world, 'Look, I've been there. I've done it. I talked to every person I know, and Network Marketing just doesn't work. Save your money.'

    THAT'S what you're dealing with if you choose this as a profession - the opinions of ignorant people who think they've done it right and it doesn't work. If that's going to be too hard to handle, then Network Marketing isn't for you. But if you can embrace it, the world is yours.

    The people who embrace this get paid BIG money. Companies will pay unlimited amounts to people who can help blind people see, who can educate the ignorant, and who can build a community of like-minded people.

    Some people like to say, 'Perception is reality.' I hate that saying. All great leaders in the world have ignored it for centuries. What if Nelson Mandela had said perception is reality? What if Martin Luther King Jr. had said perception is reality? What if Steve Jobs had said perception is reality? The GREAT leaders of the world said, 'Reality is reality, and I'm going to do everything possible to help people understand that fact.'

    The truth is, Network Marketing IS NOT perfect. It's just BETTER. And that's reality!

    And what does it say about people who come into it with a lottery mentality?

    Yep, I agree.

    MLM is nothing more than a glorified lottery ticket w/ the option to sucker a few others in a scheme into thinking a few free boxes of soap (or whatever) is a "goal".

    Sad but true.

    Nope...it's NOT a real business.

    Another one who didn't understand the article. Its saying that is how people treat the business WRONGLY. The ones who don't treat it like a lottery and treat it like a business instead, do well.

    So Ohein56 must have treated MLM like a lottery, given his dismal results.

    What about your results?

    Care to share?

    Make up whatever you want, cause it doesn't really matter, does it Mr Anonymous....? Even if you shared the truth (fat chance of that ever happening...!), you could never prove it regardless, jokey...!

    Why don't you post your results....again?

    You have already posted two strikingly different versions here in this forum so far.

    It would be fascinating to see if you have the talent to pull a third one out of your arse for public consumption.

    Tell us what really happened.

    Thanks!

    Yes he is, he just spreads his vast knowledge and experience now. He has a Web page NMPRO with some great videos.

    Re: Network Marketing - The Reality

    The main reason why 97% of people fail in Network Marketing is because of the fact that 97% of Network Marketing companies fail within their first 2 – 5 years of business or less with extremely few achieving or making it past the 10 year mark.
